You need the crochet provisional cast on so you can graft the legs to the waist/butt/crotch. If you don't use a crochet cast on you would knit the body first then hold the leg stitches off on waste yarn and knit each leg. Which is how I would do it, since otherwise you are doing a lot of grafting in an obvious place. I am actually not sure why the pattern doesn't call for this in the first place.
That's not how I read it. I read that the legs are knit down to include the ruffle at the cuff, then the provisional cast on is undone, and the body is knit up from those new live stitches.
